Twin test: Renault Megane RS vs. Honda Civic Type R

Two of the best hot hatches on the market go head to head as the new Renault Megane RS Cup takes on the mighty Honda Civic Type R.

Audi A1 Sportback test drive

The Audi A1 Sportback is almost everything we expected. Some of the interior quality is disappointing, but otherwise it's an excellent supermini.

Smart EQ ForTwo test drive

For an inner-city driver, the Smart EQ ForTwo makes plenty of sense. However, those looking to travel further afield may find it a little too limited.

Abarth 695C Rivale test drive

The latest Abarth 695C Rivale is one of its most special Fiat 500-based hot hatches yet – a daft pocket rocket with bags of character.

2019 Skoda Fabia test drive

The Skoda Fabia remains a competitive supermini following a minor facelift focusing on slighlty changed looks and some extra equipment.

Vauxhall Corsa GSi review

While an adequate warm hatch, it offers no price advantage and suffers from a significant performance disadvantage against the Ford Fiesta ST.

Twin test: Volkswagen Up! vs. Kia Picanto

We’re testing out two key city car competitors, the Volkswagen Up! and the Kia Picanto, to see which one is the best urban runabout.

Ford Focus review

The new Ford Focus offers more technology, greater space, improved quality and impressive on-road performance, resulting in a car that ticks all the boxes.

Suzuki Baleno review

The Suzuki Baleno is the larger of two superminis available from the Japanese brand, sitting alongside the much better-known Swift.

Peugeot 308 GTi review

The 308 GTi is a very good hot hatch – suitable as an everyday car but with enough performance, handling and grin factor to please enthusiastic drivers.

Kia Ceed review

The new Kia Ceed is a mainstream family car and an equal to the biggest-selling cars on the market. And it no longer has a silly name…

Ford Ka+ Active review

Ford has updated its smallest car and added an SUV-styled version. Will the Ka+ Active hit the right note?
